- Lawful Basis for processing your Personal Data and Information
We will only collect and process your Personal Data and Information where we have a lawful basis to do so. As a Data Controller, the lawful basis for our collection and processing of your Personal Data varies depending on the manner and purpose for which we collect it. Therefore:
- for the purposes described under Sections 4.a and 4.d we process your Personal Data and Information only if and to the extent that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract (Art. 6 par. 1 a GDPR)
- for the purposes described under Sections 4.b, 4.c, 4.d, 4.e and 4.g we process your Personal Data and Information only if and to the extent that we have a legitimate interest, except where such interest is overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data (Art. 6 par. 1 f GDPR)
In addition, we collect and process your Personal Data and Information if and to the extent that the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of requirements and obligations stated in laws, regulations or decisions from authorities and supervisors (legal obligation) or processing is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person
Consent. For any other purpose not included in the purposes described under Section 4 or in case of processing of special categories of data, we will ask for your consent to process your Personal Data and Information. The consent will contain information on that specific processing activity. In this case the lawful basis for the processing by us of your Personal Data and information is the consent you provided. If you have given consent to a processing of your Personal Data and Information you can always withdraw the consent as described in Section 11 g.
We will only use your Personal Data and Information for the purposes for which we have collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose or the processing undertaken is otherwise permitted by law. In case we use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you promptly and we will explain the lawful basis which allows us to do so.
Whenever we note that we use legitimate interest as a legal basis for a specific situation, we rely on internal legal analysis on how in these specific cases we have balanced out the legitimate interest to the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. The analysis is updated if we decide to collect more data, for another purpose or there are new developments that require a new assessment.
- Where your Personal Data and Information is stored
Our Company currently maintains Servers where your Personal Data and Information is stored, in the United States of America. Therefore, your Personal Data and Information may be processed on servers located outside of the country where you are located.
If you are accustomed to or familiar with the privacy laws of other countries, please note that the laws governing the processing of Personal Data and Information in the United States of America may not be as rigorous as those in the European Union, Switzerland or other nations. Furthermore:
- as of July 16th, 2020, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is no longer a valid mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States,
- as of September 8th, 2020, the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) of Switzerland issued an opinion concluding that the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework does not provide an adequate level of protection for data transfers from Switzerland to the United States pursuant to Switzerland’s Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP).
However, this does not relieve participants in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield of their obligations under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework neither relieve participants in the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield of their obligations under the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.
- Who we may disclose your Personal Data and Information to

(iii) to assist them in understanding our user’s interests, habits, and usage patterns for certain and assessing whether or how they plan to advertise using our Services.
d. Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others. We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We only disclose Personal Data and Information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties when we reasonably believe necessary or appropriate:
- to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas and warrants)

- to investigate and stop any activity that we consider illegal, unethical, or legally actionable.
- How your Personal Data and Information is transferred
If we transfer your Personal Data and Information from Switzerland or the EU to other countries, including the USA, we ensure that a similar degree of protection is provided to your Personal Data and Information as within Switzerland or the EU, as applicable, by ensuring that at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- The country that your Personal Data and Information is transferred to is a country that the European Commission has deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for Personal Data and Information.
- We use specific contracts approved by the European Commission, which give your Personal Data and Information the same protection as it has in the EU, as applicable, when we engage with service providers.
- How we keep your Personal Data and Information safe
However, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Data and Information, and there is some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way to circumvent our security systems or that transmission of your information over the Internet will be intercepted. We cannot and do not guarantee that Personal Data and Information about you will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our security measures.
